Premiere: Tangina Stone Sings About Troubling Times In "Ride Off"

Ohio-to-Brooklyn transplant, Tangina Stone, graces our pages once again with a new song, hot off the presses. After we featured the bubbling artist in our First Look Friday series, Tangina toured the country, released new music, became one of the best emerging soul artists in New York City and got engaged. With all of those life changes, Stone was inspired by the time spent and created “Ride Off” as a result. Based on those troubling moments that every man and woman in a serious relationship go through, Tangina and her fiancée began to show their uglier sides during a great time of vulnerability.
Suffering from the front lines, Tangina watched her love devastated at the loss of her father (who was like a father to her, too) and documented the event as best she could through song. “That’s why I’d die / you know I’d die / 100 deaths before they ever take you from my side,” she croons on the CJ THE GREAT-produced cut. The collective, which is under featured artist Crystal Caines, gives Tangina Stone a rock-tinged diddy-bop that sounds right at home for the pure-and-honest artist.
All of this is for her upcoming sophomore effort by Tangina Stone, entitled, Elevate.
The project, which has been two years in the making, features fellow First Look Friday alum, Kenneth Whalum, and Harlem-based rapper, producer and engineer Crystal Caines, who also serves as the album’s executive producer as well. All in All, “Ride Off” is totally worth your time, as Tangina Stone will double-down on her awesomeness by performing this at her performance at Mercury Lounge (217 E. Houston Street, New York, N.Y.). Doors open at 9:30 p.m., as the opening act, Gemaine, will be on at 10:00 p.m. and Tangina will headline at 11:00 p.m.
